Mani Monday's: Big fat foil fail


Happy Monday everybody! Did you all have a great weekend?
Today's theme is foil and I had no clue what to do with this theme. I don't own any nice foil finish polishes and I don't own any nail foils. So I took to the internet and discovered that you can actually do a nice mani with aluminum foil. I saw gorgeous pictures of smooth, mirror like mani's and decided to give it a go.

I mean, just look at this:

I want that on my nails, yes please! So I took out my foil, searched on youtube for a how to tutorial and got to work.

I think every picture that looks like the one I just showed you is misleading though, it has to be, because my final result didn't look anything like the picture above, not even close! It was crinkled and just plain ugly. I don't even want to show it to you and I've shown you some ugly nail art before! But this one... nope... not going to happen!

By the time I did my last nail (pinky), I started to get the hang of it, well, kind of, but it still wasn't anywhere near as nice as the pictures I saw. I threw in the towel and gave up...


On to next week!
What's your biggest nail art fail?

  5. I think that most of the DIY alu foil photo's are fake. I've tried it myself after reading about it in your blog but I failed aswell.
